My mum and dads front door is painted white but rust has started to come through around the letter box and door panels. Can anyone recommend a paint that would cover the rust and prevent it developing long term? And whether i would need to treat the rust with something first?

I was hoping i could just paint it without any treatment other than just cleaning it.

Thanks

if you can get a hammerite in the colour you want you could paint directly onto the rust - not sure what sort of finish you would end up with though.

best bet would be to sand the area to remove the rust, treat with a rust remedy then paint over with standard paint.

Only option is to sand and cover with a zinc primer before repainting or the rust will just lift the paint back up.

Get some rust converter from Halfords £6 I think. Don't dip brush in the pot or the lot will get triggered and set. Pour out of pot first. Dig out to expose rust. Treat rust. Fill with 2 pack wood filler. Sand. Primer door and gloss with exterior paints.

Zinnser do a range of products that prime and cover well
